guest, jonathan allen, senior correspondent at politico. who do you think about the list? >> i think you guys hit for "the cycle" clearly. to mix the sports metaphors. >> i like that. >> i think you guys missed an important tale of the tape that mitt romney is 6'2" and 200 pounds. barack obama is 6'1" and 175. romney is a little more plotting as a fighter, a little bit more mechanical. obama perhaps a little lighter but maybe not punching quite as hard. if you're looking for a fight scorecard, look at those metrics to start. one other thing that i think is important to remember in this. you talk about the advantage of presidency, but there's a disadvantage, which is a rhetorical strength barack obama didn't have the last time he debated. anything he says about a foreign country can be judged in diplomatic terms when he talks about issues and congress. these are blow up. he knows too much in a way and has to figure out how to bring back the knowledge set to what he says publicly both from a legal and sort of intelligence standpoint and also just from a good politicliolitical standpoi. >>
to jonathan dine. >> the u.s. postal svice is very important to most of the people in this room today. it is now trying to go into a program that would compete and be unfair to newspapers. in many cases, newspapers the largest customer for the post office in the community. what i like to know is, what is your position on this issue and the other issues of closing rural post offices and iminating saturday livery. what's your position on this? what would do you in the senate to help rural newspapers and community newspapers that depend on the ptal service? >> like many of the things run by the government, the postal office is one of them that's very inefficient. i have a friend who works for the postal office as mail carriers. he gets four days straight, ten hours a day. every time he's needed, he gets more oveime. the federal government instead of hiring postal service, will prefer to pay double time or time in a half to one individual wasting more money instead of hiring more people and creating more jobs. i think that the postal service should cut cost if it wish to remain around. m
there. >> indeed. karen finney, jonathan -- sorry, michael sherer and john harwood, thank you. >>> could the president's best defense be offense? stay with us. >> barack obama was talking about a quiet ride today. no, it was not a reference to the 1980s heavily metal band, unfortunately. the senator waded into the controversial waters of race during a speech at hampton university in virginia. >> it is a glimpse into the mind of the real barack obama. and it's one all americans need to pay close attention to. joining me now to talk about this video is the man who broke the story, tucker carlson. ♪ colorado rocky mountain high hungry for the best? it's eb. want to give your family the very best in taste, freshness, and nutrition? it's eb. want to give them more vitamins, omega 3s, and less saturated fat? it's eb. eggland's best eggs. eb's. the only eggs that make better taste and better nutrition... easy. eggland's best eggs. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs. it's eb. his morning starts with arthritis pain. and two pills. afternoon's overhaul starts with more pain. more pills.

the critique reagan was voicing for months, everyone in the room freaked out. jonathan prince was a speech writer in the clinton white house. how are you? >> i'm good, toure. how are you? >> they're three traditional disadvantages every incumbent will face in the debate context. number one, standing on stage alongside the president is ennobling for the challenger. it's hard to do debate prep because of their job. number three, they lived for years in this bubble where everyone's differential and nobody is challenging them. they're like a king. they're standing in front of millions of people and someone saying you're not doing your job ri right. am i missing anything? >> the one about the bubble in particular is a serious thing. you're president of the united states almost four years. you get into discussions and debate about policy. your staff may disagree, but there's an element of deference. you're a commander in chief. suddenly the job of the debate is to break that all down and take it apart and get them to become again someone who does it. the real trick in debates is to get under you

a more favorable impression of romney. joining me now are jonathan capeheart, opinion writer for "the washington post" and nia henderson a reporter for "the washington post." nia, the verdict is in here. i can't think of a way mitt romney could possibly say something tomorrow night more damaging and more important to this campaign than what he's already said about the 47%. >> that's right. and you will imagine that tomorrow he will try to make up for the damage. every time i see the video i always look at that waiter who is moving past that camera and wonder what that waiter must be thinking when they hear mitt romney say this. and if you look at some of the polls one of the things that's obvious is that president obama is starting to do well, particularly among a blue collar women. if you look at the polls in 2008 he got about 41%, in some of these swing states now, iowa, wisconsin, he's doing 52% among these women, blue collar white women and i think in some ways this video is probably going to help him do even better. if you look at what they've done with their own commercial, they
jonathan capehart and victor defrancesco and jamaal simpsons and national republican consul stant katon dawson. i'm taking professorial privilege here. we need to have a conversation on race all the time. but part of it is we need a conversation on what race actually is. >> it's a social construct nevertheless. it's a concrete pillar in the society. not just in the u.s. if you look at lat inamerica. they make the u.s. look weak. they have 16 different categorizations. we have to acknowledge that race has been with us since the founding documents. it's embedded in race. i think another document that keeps perpetuating race in our society, whether we like it or not is the census. >> yes. >> the census defines race. so we can't get away from it. we can't say we live in a racially colorblind society because we keep institutionalizing race. recently, there's a discussion of including latino as a racial category not just ethnic. create a whole new race in the next census. >> the notion that we can undo racism but undoing these data is also false. on the one hand, it's socially constructive. i
legislation against human trafficking. a new report suggests the stalemate is not purely political. jonathan serrie live in atlanta. what is at stake, jonathan. >> reporter: congressional quarterly reports that much of the standoff is over a disagreement on women's health issues. in the past republicans and democrats were able to achieve consensus on this when they passed this law originally in 2000 and then reauthorized it three times since. it's the trafficking victims protection act. it imposes stiff federal penalties on traffickers and funds perhaps programs to assist police and prosecutors as well as victims. advocates say the law has to be updated every few years to adapt to the changing methods of the traffickers and continue funding efforts to catch them and they their victims. rule vision a christian organization that supports humanitarian projects, including this recovery center for children rescued from trafficking in cambodia is concerned about what will happen if congress fails to act. listen. >> this is going to have a real impact on innocent lives here in the u.s. and across t
headlines in the next 24 hours? "washington post" editorial writer and msnbc contributor jonathan kapart joins me from the white house. i just saw this. the iranian news agency has fallen for a story written by the onion citing the fact that 60% of white rural voters prefer president ahmadinejad to president obama. they've written it straight. it's great. according to the results of a gallup poll released monday the wloefrl whelming white americans would rather stroet for mahmoud ahmadinejad than barack obama. i like him better said the west virginia resident who along with 77% of rural caucasians would rather go to a baseball game or have a drink with ahmadinejad than with obama. you got to love it. >> it's hilarious, andrea. >> it is "the onion," and this is a joke, people. >> is the iranian prime minister still in town? can anybody get a message to him to let himle know? >> i think he has left, but we should tell the iranian news agency they have to the get a sense of humor understand satire. a lot of people get caught up in things like this. we have debate prep coming and the vice pr
. jonathan martin joins me now. let's talk about -- >> hi, andrea. >> mitt romney or at least he is clearly moderating a lot of what he has said, the tone is different, the words are different, you hear empathy, caring. >> right. >> talking about the suffering of the american business. >> middle class, income. >> softer mitt romney and don't hear outcries from the conservative right. they want to win. >> i've been so struck about how muted the response has been, not just after the debate, but even going back to where governor romney told nbc's ron allen that his state health care plan showed his empathy. that's the kind of thing that would typically drive conservatives crazy who don't believe using government is a way of showing empathy. andrea i was struck and i'm sure you were too, how many times did romney say that he was not trying to push some big tax cut plan. i mean, jack kemp must be spinning in his grave, the orthodox in the republican party has been that big tax cuts, especially for high earners, lead to economic growth. you saw romney try to move away from that view and i think i
. these are the very people governor romney was supposed to be trying to get. >> cenk: i think jonathan had the best point. he said since he said it in private, people will give it more credence. so whatever he stays in public, they are going to discount. that's why it was devastating, because right or wrong, the american people thought that's the real mitt romney. >> jennifer: and then yesterday we have the tape of ryan coming out in a speech saying that 30% of america want a welfare state, do not want to achieve the american dream which is just a pile on of that same ethos of that half of the country, or 30% of the country -- >> ayn rand. >> jennifer: exactly right. i agree with eliot i think behind closed doors that he really does think that. i really think that that's how he believes -- >> eliot: can i add an footnote to that. it doesn't mean he is not a generous soul and a good compassionate person but he does believe that there is a big percentage of our public that doesn't aspire to work on its own. >> jennifer: i agree. >> cenk: one thing that got a little overlooked
will run all night unless you jiggle that handle. >> reporter: jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >> you got to jiggle it. >> and we thank you for watching "world news" tonight. watch our abc news/yahoo live stream on abcnews.com. our anniversary of our partnership with yahoo. and george and i and the whole team will be right here, join us, at 9:00 p.m. eastern for this big debate. we'll see you then. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mititt romney led bain, thy saw global tech ec a good investment... even knowing that the rm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt romney - tough on china? since when?

be a difficult process to match for the top leadership. >> thank you to ashley and jonathan and the rest of the team it is a great honor to be here today i see some people in the audience to learn from and worked with sorry i don't have time to mention more people and i probably shouldn't because i might get names wrong. i had just flown in from victoria, british columbia having attended a nice sponsored by the canadian navy and i think i know but now about how they felt they finally made it in 2002. it's been a great journey. i couldn't be excited to be a part of the project. i remember in graduate school what princeton i purchased my tree first strategic asia volume and collection of the subsequent ones and one thing i noticed is that principle and when people move offices or left to go somewhere else the book series would be left in the free book section, but this never, ever happened with strategic asia. before i go further, i have to make the obligatory disclaimer that all of this involves my personal views, of course none of the official policy assessments of the u.s. navy and any
. >> thanks. i want to ask this question for jonathan. well, thanks for coming. i would like, i think i don't hear both agree that democracy, we have so much money and few, so little people, do you think that that undermines democracy? because me as a soldier, i volunteer whole year. $1 million, that makes more, more than one all i can do for work for campaign. and how is that, how do you think that disenfranchises what we are as america, democracy? because i think that's for america spent i think of to look at what the alternative is, right? the alternative is saying that it is censoring. so i don't know the joint to be put into a situation we have a government is determined by someone who wants to put his ideas up on television can't do that. that's one of the things. with campaign finance is that what you said about tamoxifen it's the worst form of government other than all the other forms of government after. that campaign finance may not look perfect but when you look ago turned as i do know they are very good. i don't know it's very good to have department of justice you can't run tel
. still at least one key sector is showing signs of improvement. jonathan serrie has that. he is live from atlanta. jonathan? >> reporter: hi, jon. auto manufacturing has certainly become a bright spot in the u.s. economy responding to increased consumer demand. carmakers, both foreign and domestic, are adding literally thousands of jobs to their u.s. plants. in addition to new highs they're also bringing back some experienced workers who were laid off during the recession. although some of these experienced workers may find it's not exactly the same job when it comes to payday. listen. >> the benefits packages have definitely been lower and a lot of those plants are not unionized. so that has been some of the discussion. uaw has been interested in unionizing some of those plants. so far all of them have resisted. >> reporter: even union shops have agreed to lower pay and benefits as part of the restructuring of the big three automakers but the increase in auto manufacturing jobs is expected to have multiplier effect in other parts of the economy. the center for automotive research estimat
checking when jonathan strong of roll call joins us in our next half hour. >>> some of the other top stories we're following for you this morning, a meningitis outbreak is killing people across the nation, including here in maryland and virginia. two people have died in those states, and the cdc says the number of cases has risen to 26 nationwide, killing a total of four people. the outbreak is a rare form of the infection stemming from a steroid injection used to treat back pain. now, the steroid was made in massachusetts. it's since been recalled. >>> a 17-year-old boy dropped his brother off at the entrance to their high school, then goes to park the car. now, that was monday morning. but police say he hasn't been seen since. >> a frantic search for the teenager is now under way in fairfax county. fox 5's melanie aldwick joins us with the details. good rning, melanie. >>reporter: good morning, tony and allison. brian glenn's family say they didn't realize he was missing until he didn't come home from football practice on monday night. now, an automatic notice that he was absent
'm positive that jonathan doesn't spend time thinking how we can suppress voters. and we don't. but that solution, the solution of voter id is wrong. >> sir? >> i'd like to thank for coming here. before i ask my question i'd like to redo a quote on the issue. he said in the aftermass we have seen undress -- often by groups that won't disclose the donor. my question is how important is anonymity? because it seems to me like if your argument is money is free speech, then we should hold people accountable for what they say. if the ceo of pepsi were to give million dollars to romney tomorrow, i wouldn't buy pepsi for the rest of the year. how are we going to hold them accountable? >> just a year? [laughter] he's not committed. >> so you to work it. >> there are sodas i cannot go without. >> other pepsi products might be okay. >> not in new york city not if they are large. >> it has to be 16 ounces. can't be anymore than that. >> what i'm saying how can we hobble them accountable when we don't know what they're saying. >> i'll take a jab at it. long story short there a groups that
. >> jonathan's research based on surveys of thousands of people concluded that most of us choose our political party less on fact and more on which politician seems to be like members of our clan. >> he says conservatives join with people who worry more about foreign threats. liberals are more likely to obsess about the purity of nature. >> may i mideast have more arsenic in my water, mommy? >> these sanctity purity ideas about the environment. >> more salmonella in my cheeseburger, please. >> lots of research shows the subconscious matters more than fact. >> the professor at princeton did a very illoom nateing study. he said pick who looks more confident. >> here's how most people rank them. >> he predicted the outcome of all those races based on which candidate looked more confident. not beautiful, but more confident. 70% of the time the more confident-looking person won the election. >> candidates with more angular faces, as seen here, are seen as more competent. at the face becomes more baby-faced, people say that person looks less competent. >> people make decisions based on looks? >> loo

a statement. and a new york magazine jonathan challenged romney over his economic plan that seems to rely on some magical numbers and thinking, quote, so romney is a candidate of a 20% cut in tax rates, a new plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions and higher defense spending and he will accomplish it all by eliminating federal funding for pbs. the question is can obama and his team win the post debate debate by highlighting some of this nonsense and romney's fuzzy language? willy brown is the former mayor of san francisco, former speaker of the house out there. joan walsh is editor at large or salon and the author of "what's the mat we are white people." i want to get to these points. can you win on the fact having lost perhaps on performance value? >> it's very, very difficult to get people in the world observing politicians to overcome to the substance. they always go for style. they always are influenced by performances, and i believe mr. obama took a licking last night. the public knows that and now to suggest that the facts support what his position is supposed to be i don
